Iphigenia in Tauris by Euripides ( Book )
3 editions published between 1903 and 1910 in Greek, Ancient and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""The Iphigenia in Tauris is not in the modern sense a tragedy; it is a romantic play, beginning in a tragic atmosphere and moving through perils and escapes to a happy end. To the archaeologist the cause of this lies in the ritual on which the play is based.

So begins the preface to ""Iphigenia in Tauris"" by Euripides as translated and prefaced by Gilbert Murray.</spa
Hippolytus by Euripides ( Book )
3 editions published in 1900 in Greek, Ancient and English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No play of Euripides is more admired than Hippolytus. The tale of a married woman stirred to passion for a younger man was traditional, but Euripides modified this story and blended it with one of divine vengeance to create a masterpiece of tension, pathos, and dramatic power. In this play, Phaedra fights nobly but unsuccessfully against her desire for her stepson Hippolytus, while the young man risks his life to keep her passion secret. Both of them, constrained by the overwhelming force of divine power and human ignorance, choose to die in order to maintain their virtue and

Desolation and despair reign supreme in the kingdom of Mycenae.

The Bacchae by Euripides ( Book )
2 editions published in 1896 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Bacchae was not only the last and greatest of Euripides' tragedies, it was very close to the last of the great Greek tragedies. The story of the play is in part about this cultural dissolution in Athens. It's also about the theatre itself, and how a sane society needs strong, intelligent theatre to survive."--BOOK JACKET

David Mankin's introduction and commentary examines all aspects of Horace's relationship with his models and of the technical accomplishment of his verse; it also gives help with linguistic problems. His edition places the Epodes firmly in their literary and historical context: Rome at the time of its greatest crisis, the Civil War which ended the Republic and led to the establishment of the Principate
